A Stunning new Resort Community Built on Beautiful Beachfront Property

With breathtaking views of the Bay de Porto Marquez in Acapulco, Mexico, you will find Bahlay, a stunning new residential condominium community built on beautiful beachfront property in Pichilingue.

The complex features 26 luxury units and four penthouses in a tropical setting where the jungle meets the sea. Four, nine-story towers sparkle in the sun from the combined use of glass and stone – Eldorado Stone. In a highly sophisticated design plan, Eldorado’s Alderwood Stacked Stone profile was selected to create a uniquel textural contrast from the generous amount of glass used. It was extremely important to ensure every unit had unobstructed views, so the stone brings balance to all the glass on the towers. The stone was also used to create dramatic accent walls in various spaces throughout the complex, creating a natural backdrop to the sleek architectural lines of the project.

“We selected Eldorado Stone because of its exactness and similarity to natural stone,” says Manual Lara Lopez, of Edmonds International, the project architect for Bahlay. “Ease of installation was important to use because of the way the stone on the towers intersected with the walls that featured unique drop-offs,” he says. Stone is also used around the recreation areas. “Using Eldorado Stone helped to avoid any installation complications.”

The project began in June 2004 and Bahlay opened its doors in November 2006. Each unit features private terraces, Jacuzzi baths, travertine marble floors, granite countertops, and every luxury one desires in a tropical getaway home. The complex also features a restaurant with outdoor seating, a clubhouse, a gorgeous spa and pool area, tennis courts surrounded by beautiful gardens and a roof-top lobby where one can sit and enjoy the spectacular views.

“The use of Eldorado Stone in unique geographical settings like Acapulco is another example of the diversity and growing popularity of manufactured stone internationally,” says Steve Vico, Eldorado’s International Sales Manager. “We have the ability to create a more affordable and convenient design outcome for builders and architects virtually anywhere in the world because of our company’s focus on product innovation and our commitment to meeting customer’s needs.”
